Postgraduate Loans

If you start a full-time or part-time Master's course after 1 August 2016, you may be eligible for the government's new Postgraduate Loan, which is now open for applications.

You can borrow up to £10,000to put towards your Master's fees or your living costs - you can even use it to part-fund the cost of an MBA. Please be aware that the £10,000 loan will not cover your full fees and living costs so you must have alternative arrangements in place  e.g. part-time work or a Career Development Loan to make up the difference.

Eligibility doesn't depend on personal or family income, but you need to:

  • be under 60-years-old
  • ordinarily live in England/the EU (not including Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales)
  • not already have a degree at Master's level or above

See full eligibility criteria on the government website.

Check out our postgraduate courses now, or find out more about the loan on the Find a Master's website.
